The Harry Potter Studio Tour

A couple weekends ago we visited the Harry Potter Studios at Warner Bros.  It seems quite hard to find someone who isn’t a fan of Harry Potter in this day and age.  Whether you have read the books or seen the movies or both, you will enjoy this tour.  It gives you an inside look […]

Brighton & Hove
